Upcoming webinar series – preventing Maori suicide

Attendance at the webinars is free, and you can register through the links below:

The webinars will be of interest to kaimahi/professionals from a range of sectors who work with Maori whanau, hapu, iwi, hapori Maori and individuals. This may include health providers, social services, iwi organisations, kaupapa Maori services, NGOs and community groups, tertiary institutions and high schools, local and central government, organisations directly involved in suicide prevention, and other people interested in preventing Maori suicide.
